Openpath Launches Digital Badging Capabilities to Revolutionize Access Control

Openpath has reimagined the ideal digital badge for today’s modern workforce and workplace.

As an industry disruptor, Openpath first revolutionized mobile access control by studying user behavior to add obvious, simple, yet powerful tools that ensure a frictionless user experience while making organizations more secure. Now, Openpath’s new, reimagined digital badge gives system administrators new ways to address their company’s security policies and procedures with greater focus, flexibility and features.

  • Customized digital badge design tool so your physical ID badge & picture now match your Digital Credential
  • Call or email for help feature to eliminate lock outs “at the door”
  • Single Sign-On App authentication through Okta to ensure security compliance
  • Door auto-detect technology recognizes closest door on home screen
  • Dynamic Status tags can change your work group or vaccination status in real time
  • Streamlined support options to determine where and how employee questions are answered, either via Openpath or directly to your company’s security operations center (SOC).

“As an enterprise customer of Openpath, we’ve been impressed with their ability to innovate and deliver a product that is both highly secure and that elevates the employee experience. They are transforming traditional access control into an experience that is modern, seamless, and meets the need of the new workplace," said Brooke Lierman, senior director of Workplace Technologies at Okta.

“We have so much intellectual property housed inside these laboratories, and a constantly rotating roster of accelerator teams. Adding to that are reduced occupancy guidelines and heightened safety concerns due to COVID-19. With all of these challenges, Openpath has been key to the operational success, safety and security of both LabFellows and HomeLab at CNT members,” said Julio de Unamuno IV, LabFellows Founder & CEO.

The long-standing legacy of a physical keycard for identification being more secure than a digital keycard is no longer true. Mobile security has advanced, and the security vulnerabilities of a physical keycard, which are easily lost or cloned, still remain. Furthermore, mobile badging ensures a pervasive, unified safety and security experience across all of an organization’s company apps, whether on browser or mobile, and for the first time, notifies a company right at the door if there is a cybersecurity issue, and gives them the appropriate steps to resolve it easily, quickly and efficiently.

While there will always be a role for the physical ID badge, Openpath has chosen to improve upon it by giving it a digital twin with features that other mobile solutions simply don’t offer, and customized solutions tailored to accommodate a company’s size, scale, and specific security needs. For example, many enterprise companies require staff to wear a physical credential for compliance purposes. Supplementing that with a digital credential offers a fail-safe in the event the physical badge is damaged or a second form of ID is needed to show an updated photo or other pertinent information, such as vaccination status.

“The beauty of the Openpath’s open architecture system is that it allows us to continuously innovate and create new options for companies that weren’t thought to be possible with older technologies,” said Alex Kazerani, CEO and co-founder of Openpath. “We have been breaking barriers to mobile access control since day one and today we are so excited to deliver a new digital badge that surpasses the security of a physical badge, plus offers custom features and extensive functionality for system administrators of all types of companies and sizes.”
